This method must be called before the file is scraped.

Occasionally a site will expect a multi-part request when a file is not being sent in the request.

If you include a file upload parameter under the parameters tab of the scrapeable file the request will automatically be multi-part.


Specify that Request contains Files

 // In script called "Before file is scraped"

 // Will cause the request to be made as a multi-part request.
